As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2: 4-5

Busy Saturday's soccer time! The Upwards soccer season officially started today. Maddy is on team Thunder, and while she was a little under the weather, she was excited to get ready and play some soccer! We got there at the right time only to find out that they were running a game behind, so we had lots of time to kill. Maddy had a great game and did a good job, but her team lost 3-1. I think she was so excited to be back on the field though, that she didn't really care. The picture quality stinks because it was so bright, I couldn't really see that well. But after what seems like two whole weeks of rain and gloom, I'll take a few bad pictures if it means that we get to see the sun!
Here she is right before the clock started.

Doing what she does best...playing defense. She got the award for best defense this week!
And Hannah, playing in the dirt, because you know she "has to make a hole!"

After soccer, the girls and I went out to lunch and then spent 3 hours shopping for Easter. Had to get all three girls Easter dresses, Easter shoes, sweaters in case it was chilly, and then all three girls needed tennis shoes and Sarah and Hannah needed bathing suits before we head to the lake. While I love to shop, it made me sick to my stomach to spend all that money...and we shopped cheap! None of the kids have summer clothes yet...I don't know how people do it!!!
But they will be beautiful, and everything they got, they really did need. I was just amazed at the people shopping who were buying amazing amounts of clothes for just one child--like $300-$400 dollars worth. And we are about to have to clothe four...for one season...and then they will grow out of them. I don't know what we would do (besides laugh and tell them to get a job) if our kids expected or demanded name brand, or designer clothes!
